This is one of my favorite simple recipes. My mom used to make this granola for me when I was in high school (and occasionally when I was in college). It’s delicious, quick, and incredibly easy to make. You can also do a lot to personalize it by adding in seeds, nuts, fruits, or anything

Crock pot meals are some of my favorites because I can throw stuff in the pot in the morning, turn it on, and have dinner ready in the evening whenever I need it. Meals like that are especially nice when either hubby has long meetings that take him until after or I have to leave

I had a giant pork loin hanging out in my freezer and I knew it had been there for a while but I wasn’t sure just how long “a while” had been. While looking for recipe ideas for braising, roasting, marinating, and countless other things I wasn’t super interested in, I remembered that pulled pork

Happy Halloween, my spooky friends! Your treat for tuning in is a delicious recipe for a sweet cordial, but the trick is that you have to wait for it to be ready! Halloween is my favorite holiday, and while I could spend the entire post telling you all about superstitions and pagan lore and fun

This summer, I had a craving for something summery, but in a crockpot. I realize that it’s now fall, but when I wrote this, it was late June. I did some serious backlogging for the wedding… So, I’m sorry for holding onto this for so long before I could release it, but on the other hand,

Limoncello is an Italian liqueur made with lemon peels, alcohol, sugar, and patience. If you want to put your leftover naked lemons to use, make a double batch of this recipe and then use the fruit and any leftover alcohol to make hard lemonade (or regular lemonade)! This is a set-it-and-forget-it recipe with a quick prep

Don’t let the ingredient list fool you, this recipe is super easy, super healthy, and super filling. It can also easily be converted into a vegetarian recipe by swapping out the chicken for some extra firm or firm tofu. Make it vegan with a cheese substitute. When we make this recipe (as I try to

One of my favorite drinks (next to rum and Coke or Jägermeister and Dr. Pepper) is hard lemonade. I’ve been drinking MIke’s since I was in college. I’d grab a bottle and take it outside with me whenever I had to work on my bike. Now that I’m older and I have more to do

Chili? In summer?? Oh yeah, I went there. Even if you live somewhere hot, in my opinion, there’s never a wrong time of year for chili. This one even features a fresh summer vegetable — zucchini! The best thing about this recipe is that it’s another slow cooker feature, so you can set it and

My friends and I got together one day, back in the fall, and we tried to make chicken burgers. They tasted great, but they just fell apart. This time, we decided to try something different — binding agents. If you ever wondered why egg and bread crumbs were on the ingredient list for meatballs and
